2 Flares 2 Flares ×

The last event of the 2011 season – the Billabong Pipe Masters is over and Kieren Perrow is over the moon probably, taking the single most important and famous event in surfing. Even more so because last year he came so close but then lost to Jeremy Flores in the finals. So is John John with his Triple Crown win and amazing performance in Pipeline tubes. Mr. Slater is pretty content as well, securing his 11 (ELEVENTH!!!) world title in San Francisco Search event. This wraps up the 2011 season that saw some amazing events and quite a few not so amazing beachbreaks, season that brought the mid-year cutoff and made some surfers express their love for tennis. After all these good times it’s time for another season, another schedule, another lineup of surfers to take a crack at the world title.

Here is the list of surfers that will compete in the first event of the 2012 – the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast.
